I'm not sure where to ask this.. Headphones Q
    #3168452 - 09/23/04 03:21 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

What headphones under 100$ canadian (70$ usd) would you guys suggest for listening to music.. Think quality, and accuracy. Size isn't an issue.. something along the lines of my old ones, since they'll just be used for listening to music at home.

Any brands to check?

I've got a set of Panasonic RP-HT455's and they sound like mud. =\
I also had a set of sony MDR-V300's.. which sounded ok, but I imagine there are better brands to be had than stylish easily broken sony. :P

Thanks for your help! :smile:

Go into a store where you can try out the various models and then decide.

the Sennheiser EV 2270's are the best cans for around $70, imo.

see the Best Headphones thread.

I don't know of any stores that allow that, maybe a smaller electronics shop.. but the major places here don't take any headphones out of their packages for demos :P

I'll definatly check out those senns, Jinx.. I've heard good things about that mark.

Grado sr-80's bout 80 dollars but the best music for your money....
The grado sr-60's are good too but its worth the money to upgrade to the 80's.
Trust me go check out some reviews.

I haven't heard anyone mention any headphones that are really that great except for the grados. Try this forum. http://www4.head-fi.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=2

They can help.

I just bought a pair of Sennheiser hd 497s.

I am amazingly pleased with these.

Mostly sennheiser and Grado popped up tho.

I got a pair of Alessandro ms-1s. It is a graso sr-80 that has been upgraded. http://www.alessandro-products.com/headphones.html
They were $99 shipped and they are great. They were made to have a flat frequency response to accurately reproduce the music the way that was intended without coloration. Check out www.headfi.org.

Wow, there sure have been a massive amount of headphone topics lately.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
